Polar Express!

We went on the Polar Express today to the North Pole (or it could have been considered taking the Metra from River Forest to Elburn)! We got to meet with Santa on the train and tell him our Christmas wishes too.  There was chocolate milk & cookies, caroling, games and stories. So fun!

This big guy is "officially" potty trained! We started Saturday and there have been just a few little accidents, but Graham has really gotten the hang of it quickly. Doesn't hurt that each potty trip is rewarded with a sticker and gummy bear. Such a big boy!! We are so proud of you Grahamie.

Comparison at Four Months

Since Quinn was born, the majority of people point out how different he looks from Liv and Graham. Although I totally agreed at the beginning and thought he had more "Murray" in him, I do think they have some strong similarities in their noses, ears and eyes. Plus I think Q is getting more "Elsener eyebrows."

Graham is over the moon excited about the recent bag of boy dress-up clothes from Aunt Meg.

Four Months Old

 Quinn is already four months and just a delightful and easy-going baby. It doesn't take much to get a big toothless grin from him and he finds his older siblings to be very entertaining. He's on a great cycle of eating, playing and napping. Overnight is not so great, but hopefully he'll get the hang of longer stretches soon. Even when he is up crying overnight, as soon as I walk in, he smiles and coos immediately.  In that past week, Quinn's become very chatty and seems to babble constantly. He seems to suddenly have gone through a growth spurt and almost doesn't fit in any six month clothes anymore. Quinn can roll from his stomach to his back, but only has done the reverse a handful of times thus far. I am sure he will be on the move in no time, so we're aren't rushing him.
Weight: 15 lbs 10 oz (53rd percentile)

Happy four months Quinnie-pie!  We're excited to celebrate your first Thanksgiving and Christmas with you as part of our family this year. And we're extra thankful of how great of a baby you are.
